About The Event

Second Sight (Second Site) Studio of Columbus Ohio will once again be facilitating a public art display that is open to anyone, regardless of gender, orientation, race, age, or experience, who would like to participate. Hearts United for One Billion Rising is a project in which individuals and collaborative groups create heart-shaped or heart-themed art to be displayed at the Bellows End schoolyard, just across the street from the studio. This year we are asking participants to hang their work on the chain link fence, so keep our harsh Ohio winds in mind when choosing materials and ways to hang the artwork! Everyone is invited to convene at the schoolyard from 11am to 2pm on Saturday, February 14 to install their hearts, enjoy the work of others, and then warm up at the studio with coffee and donuts. Last year, there were over 100 Columbus artist participants from elementary-school age all the way through adults. This year, "Hearts United" is two cities strong, with a concurrent happening at House Tremont, an alternative art space in Cleveland. More information on participation will be available at Second Sight Studio's website.

About The Organization
